Oindrilla posted on 09 February


Cliches like dining with your date, with a warm, scented candle on your table, will never go out of fashion, especially on V-Day. And if you're planning to go on that perfect date, but are worried about which part of the city to choose, look no further. From SoBo to the suburbs, or even the outskirts, we have a curated list for you.

For All Places SoBo

The Marina Upper Deck, Colaba

With striped umbrellas crowning each table, a killer sea-view, and food that's beyond great, The Marina Upper Deck in one of the pretty streets of Apollo Bandar in Colaba, needs to be added to your list. This rooftop restaurant, housed by the Sea Palace Hotel, has a majestic view of the Taj Hotel on one side, and the breathtaking sea on the other. While the attention will mostly be on how the evening's going, we can't take away the gorgeous view that will just help make it better.

In The 'Burbs

Pali Village Cafe, Bandra

If you and your partner love ruggedness, then this rustic cafe is for you. With brick interiors, and food so scrumptious, Pali Village Cafe will bowl you over with its charm. It sits quietly beside Janata Bar, and is easy to locate. The cafe has a very easygoing vibe to it, and its eclectic walls build up the drama. It's dimly lit and not too loud, perfect for a special date.

Gadda Da Vida

This lounge has a very easy-breezy vibe to it, clubbed with a pool, and a sunset that's to die for. Gadda Da Vida is situated right by Juhu beach, and you can unwind here with your partner, after a hectic Thursday at work (V-Day isn't a weekend, sigh) Sip on their sundowners and cocktails, and just take in the beauty of the ambiance.
